Chubb announced on Thursday an expanded suite of cyber loss mitigation services is now available to help the company’s policyholders in Canada and the United States reduce the impact and likelihood of a cyber incident.
According to a press release from Chubb, the expanded suite of cyber services includes:
In addition to these new offerings, Chubb’s cyber policyholders will continue to have access to a package of “Signature Assessments,” designed to help organizations quickly gauge and understand key areas of risk, the release noted. These consultative engagements are performed by a select group of industry-leading service providers to: validate a cyber incident response plan; identify sensitive information; simulate a phishing attack; scan for network vulnerabilities; and monitor cybersecurity scores.
Michael J. Tanenbaum, executive vice president of North America Financial Lines for Chubb said in the release that the company encourages policyholders to take a three-pronged approach to cyber risk management, combining insurance protection with loss mitigation and incident response services to help mitigate risk before and after an event occurs. “Our expanded suite of cyber services – particularly the addition of password defense and online security awareness training for all cyber policyholders – underscores our commitment to continuing to innovate and improve the experience for our clients,” Tanenbaum said in the release.
